Colorado has been in a major slide that has erased a pretty good start and has seen the team drop out of the National league West conversation. Runs and pitching have been tough to find in leading the way to defeats in 10-12. The offense was the blame in this one with Franklin Morales giving up two runs (one earned) through five frames before LaTroy Hawkins absorbed the defeat with a 9th inning run allowed. The Rockies totaled nine hits and a pair of bases on balls so they had several opportumities. Justin Morneau and Jeff Rutledge posted run scoring hits to pace the attack. The Rockies send air Jurrjens to the mound to skow down the Dodgers in Friday action. Jurrjens is trying to ressurect a career that was loaded with potential before injuries and poor pitching holding him down.
I am not going to go in to too mich depth because I can't look any further then Kershaw is out of this world right now. It won't las forever but hopefully it does for another day...
